How to wear red lips by Sian at Style with Friends

Hi there I'm Sian and I blog over at 'Style with Friends'. I have decided for a guest post on the lovely e-tail blog I would focus on red lipstick. It is a must have beauty product for any girl, but yet I come across a lot of people who are scared wear it. Red lips can make any outfit look hot without you even trying, so girls if you don't own a red lippy here are some for you to choose from along with two outfit ideas.

Mac RiRi Woo £14
The Body Shop Brilliant Red Colourglide £10

Any of these products are great to use but the Nars has the best staying power, I can go 6 hours without having to reapply. For evening outfit ideas I have chosen the LBD, by adding in a touch of red lips it will make your LBD stand out even more. I have gone for four different LBD to choose from instead of one outfit idea, they are different shapes to suit different bodies.

Black Panel Dress- £30 Glamorous
Black Lace Dress- £75 Next
Linen Blend Dress- £35 Next
Lace Feather Dress- £110 Lipsy

The casual outfit is based around what I like to call rock-comfort, the outfit has an edge that works really well with the red lipstick but isn't too daring. 90's denim jackets are also currently making a massive comeback so this distressed one from Romwe will fit perfectly in your wardrobe.

Skinny Jeans- £45 Next
Rolling Stones Tee- £29:99 This is Pulp
Double Creepers- £14:99 eBay

So there you go some tips for how to wear red lipstick, hope you enjoyed if you have please check out my blog for other style tips.


  1. I gravitate towards red lip products but I am equally scared to wear them. It's not just about me, people usually are too judgemental about it and where it makes you look more mature, to some it seems a bit too much. However, you've got some lovely picks there! :) Lighter shades of red can be rocked with summery pastel shades too rather than just dark evening outfits! :) xo

  2. I love the black panel dress and the lace dress. I wish I went out more to buy one of them :)
